“Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years,” his rep wrote in a statement to ET at the time. “This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.”
In The Phantom Thread, Day-Lewis plays renowned dressmaker and bachelor Reynolds Woodcock whose tailored world is upended by love for a new woman in his life. The role has earned the actor praise from critics and numerous accolades, including nominations for British Academy Film Awards, Critics’ Choice Awards and Golden Globes.
The 90th annual Academy Awards will be hosted live by Jimmy Kimmel at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, March 4 starting at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on ABC.
